UNIT COMMITMENT OF GENERATORS Example : The typical daily load and reserve requirements of a power system are as given in Table 1: Table 1 Hours 10 P.M.-10 A.M. 10 A.M.-6 P.M. 6 P.M.-10 P.M. Load, MW Reserve, MW 9 2 12 3 15 4 The system has 3 power plants with the capacity and cost figures as presented in the Table 2. Table 2 Plant Capacity Marginal Energy Cost,$/MWh Fixed Losses $/hr Start-up Cost $ Shut-down Cost $ A B C 10 10 5 50 100 150 30 20 10 100 150 80 20 10 5 The plants have constant incremental costs as represented by marginal energy cost figures given in Table 3. The minimum loads for the operating plants are 2 MW in the case of A and B and 1MW in the case of C. Assume that the start up costs are independent of whether the boilers are banked or not. Find the optimal periodic unit-commitment schedule and the corresponding short-run marginal costs. Assume merit order dispatching and ignore transmission/distribution losses.

Solution The feasible combinations of plants to be committed at any period should have total capacity that is not less than the sum of load and reserve requirements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
